10:31 pm
came. there was always a lesson with chuck brown. everything he said was a great story. you rode in the car with him for ten hours, you would never be bored. >> what is the one thing you remember, something he told you or talked about over the course of your friendship? >> what most impressed me about chuck was his love for the people. whenever replayed at venues, there was a separation between the crowd and the stage. he always asked that the police let the people come close. he never liked having body guards. he was very approachable and personalable with the crowd and he was always very, never wanted to be separated or -- even though he was larger than life, he never let anyone else know that. people say is chuck brown down to earth, and he was very, very down to earth. >> what sort of impact or legacy does he leave on the d.c. music scene on go-go, on music in general?

this section of the road is a commuter nightmare made worse with the relocation of several military departments to the fort belvoir area. >> we need to widen route 1. >> sounds great, but there's a problem. federal law says the federal highway administration must minimize the harm to historic properties. so the big question boils down to this. which part of all of this historic land deserves to be protected and which part will have to be sacrificed to make way for progress? widening a bit on both sides would affect parts of the stable fields, wood lawn plantation, which is also home to frank lloyd wright's house and the woodlawn baptist church, a congregation that dates back to 1968. >> it's not a win-win situation, because obviously there has to be a decision made and how the road will be expanded. >> a bypass option could spare
